Fantasy Football: Week 11 Waiver Wire

Danny Amendola

Its time to attack the Week 11 Waiver Wire. While the the fantasy football gods have been cruel this season and have taken away may of the studs, they have also given back. This week features a ton of talent at the wide receiver spot. Injuries have opened opportunity and these players have earned the work. There are also two running backs featured and one can help you this week.

Danny Amendola New England Patriots

A week ago I told you to pick up Danny Amendola with Dion Lewis done for the season. He excelled in the two games this season where Lewis didn’t play. This week Amendola came through with a 10 catch performance for 87 yards. Now Julian Edelman is done for a while and likely the season with a broken foot. Amendola should continue to see a ton of targets. Expect close to double digit targets the rest of the way. He is a PPR owners dream and should be solid for standard leagues.

Rashad Greene Jacksonville Jaguars

Rashad Greene was a player that seemed to be gaining traction before an injury temporarily halted his season. He had 9 catches on 17 targets before the injury. It is looking like Allen Hurns could miss weeks due to a core injury. He was in Philadelphia to see a special on Monday. Hurns has been incredible this season and missing him would create a big void in the Jaguar offense that relies on the pass attack heavily. Most may look toward Marquise Lee, who is interesting but unproductive and an injury risk. Lee only caught one of his five targets on Sunday. Greene has been practicing and seems ready to go for Jacksonville who is on a short week. I don’t love him against a Titans defense that has been solid against the pass but he could provide value. The Jaguars play the Colts, Falcons, Saints and Texans in the fantasy playoffs. Greene could be a player that helps you win your league.

Nate Washington Houston Texans

This suggestion is more of a preemptive pick up. This week Nate Washington and the Texans are home to face the New York Jets. While I don’t hate this weeks matchup, assuming Darrelle Revis will be covering DeAndre Hopkins, this is a suggestion for next week. Washington gets a home game against the New Orleans Saints. Washington has been involved in this offense every game he has played, being targeted 6 or more times a game. He has topped double digit targets twice including against the Dolphins when he was targeted and impressive 16 times.

Kamar Aiken Baltimore Ravens

Kamar Aiken has stepped up in place of Steve Smith in Baltimore and become a reliable fantasy option. He caught 7 of his 14 targets a week ago and 13 of 20 the past two weeks. He is starting to earn Joe Flacco’s trust. Aiken can stretch the field and has a decent schedule going forward. The St. Louis Rams this week isn’t ideal but after that he faces a Browns and Dolphins, Both of whom are in the top third in terms of passing yards allowed. He can be a nice wide reciever three or flex option going forward.

Denard Robinson Jacksonville Jaguars

Denard Robinson isn’t the sexiest of names but has potential this week. T.J. Yeldon is in a walking boot and there is concern he may not play, especially on a short week. The Jaguars are facing a Titans team that is bottom third in terms of rushing yards allowed and has allowed the 4th most rushing touchdowns. He can also be a help in the passing game with Allen Hurns missing time. If you are in need of running back help due to bye weeks or injuries, look to Robinson.

Jay Ajayi Miami Dolphins

I told you a week ago about Jay Ajayi. Another week is in the books and he has produced again. Nothing eye popping obviously but another 6 carries for 48 yards. He has 11 carries for 89 yards in two games this season. He is getting some work and proving his worth. Ajayi is more of a stash at this point but to see the potential is a nice sight. Lamar Miller only has 102 yards in his last three games. Miller also have 5 less yards rushing with 43 on 10 more carries. I’m not saying Miller is in danger of losing his job but as we saw in Green Bay, you don’t get to keep the job on name value alone.
